Wrath of the Lich King Sells 2.8M in 24 Hours

Thursday, November 20th, 2008 by Matt Cross

Holy crap, that’s a lot of WoW! Breaking its previous record of 2.4 million with the Burning Crusade expansion, Wrath of the Lich King’s sales exceeded 2.8 million in just 24 hours, making it the fastest selling PC game ever. CEO and Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime had this to say:

“We’re grateful for the incredible support that players around the world have continued to show for World of Warcraft. Wrath of the Lich King contains some of the best content we’ve created for the game so far, and we look forward to seeing even more players log in to experience it in the days ahead.”

Quite an accomplishment for Blizzard! Congratulations are in order for them.

Now back to your regularly scheduled leveling grind. FOR THE HORDE!

Lich King’s PVE Content Completed

Monday, November 17th, 2008 by Matt Cross

That was fast! Word coming in from TwentyFifthNovember is that a guild on a Euro server that is as of yet nameless, has defeated all of the new PVE content that was added in with WOTLK. The group is a combination of members from the guilds Nihilum and SK Gaming.

Seriously, not even 3 days since release and everything has been tackled! That was pretty damn quick. Their group had this to say:

“We are proud to declare that all WOTLK PVE raid content has now been cleared. This is both a moment of triumph and a cause for concern. The question in all our minds right now is if we could do this, how soon until the rest of the top guilds in the world clear all the raid content that WOTLK has to offer? Did Blizzard miscalculate in the tuning of these encounters? Or is this Blizzard folding under the weight of a large casual player base that demands to be on equal footing with end-game raiders?”

Congrats to them!

WoW Under Siege

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008 by Matt Cross

Most of you know of this tiny little game called World of Warcraft, and know that coming this Thursday, there will be an expansion coming out called Wrath of the Lich King. In preparation for that expansion, major WoW cities are getting invaded by scourge! I’ve heard that Stormwind is getting invaded to, but since I don’t play a sissy Alliance character, I couldn’t tell you for sure. Horde for the win.
